    Print culture requires us to be disengaged from our emotions, while electronic culture requires us to be engaged with our shared emotions across the globe, just as we are doing now.

    Trolling brings grief and joy and MBTI.
    The purpose of the Moles is to troll people.
    And they can never be happy until all the people are trolled.
    So they block grief and their subsequent happiness until all peoples have been trolled.
    And it's through MBTI that Moles gain sustenance by rewarding them with the joys and griefs that come from all the trolling in the land.
    It's through their devotion to troll against everything MBTI that they show to be the most devoted to the MBTI crusades.
    By being firmly against MBTI, Moles give it renewed power and vigor.
    Let us not be consumed by our devotion to the opposition.
    Let Moles teach us what not to do, wonderful childrens.

    What is tissue paper? I attempt to blow my nose with it and it is wholly inadequate for the task. I attempt to write on it and it rips. It seems it is neither tissue nor paper.

    If Mole is a troll, he has been a troll for 19,000 posts - hard to believe?

    And here I thought the purpose of the net was to allow me to send and receive information as I like. FB tells me it's to actually buy wacked out Kickstarter projects and do FOMO and YOLO, Twitter tells me it's to pick red vs blue, and Mole tells me it's to share emotion.

    Yeah, there are a couple of scams from the very early days of the internet too which I remember people would leave details on pen pal sites, then after a period of correspondence beg poverty, persecution or something like it and invite you to volunteer money or some kind of aid to them, I used to correspond with lots of pen pals at the time and encountered at least two of these scammers, one of them sent unsolicited pictures which were clearly cut out of a fashion magazine or society magazine of some kind, which it was easy to suss were not as they seemed, sure as night followed day they came with a tale of woe shortly there after.

    I remember at the time thinking it was strange but sad if their story was true, I've heard lots of sad stories and I'm not hard hearted but I'm very aware that throwing cash at most of them does not provide any sort of fix, just how extensive and organised the scamming is and how they play upon emotions, pity and prejudice (remember all the African prince e-mails, in the early days people were taken in because they believed African states were endemically corrupt and people routinely sought to hide money abroad and couldnt use the usual banking channels), is something I've marked over the years.

    The exploitation of others online isnt just fraud of course, it can be cyberbullying, cyberstalking, take a lot of different shapes and guises, being open can be a real mistake. I've seen people volunteer information online or make disclosures they'd refrain from in a police interview or if it were asked by a census collector.

    I'd say there's a good chance of it, similar style of posting anyway.
